MCLE’s Delinquency and Child Welfare Law

Conference brings you a cohesive program that

addresses current issues in each of the juvenile

delinquency and child welfare areas, as well as

issues shared by both. Expert child welfare and

delinquency practitioners and Juvenile Court

judges from across the Commonwealth share

their experiences and review up-to-the minute

developments in the laws.

Conference highlights include a caselaw and

legislative update and a special keynote

presentation by Dr. Stephen Herman on the

“Impact of Trauma on Children and Youth in

the Delinquency and Child Welfare Systems.”

K E Y N O T E S P E A K E R

The plenary session following the keynote

speaker focuses on working with traumatized

children and youth. The afternoon features six

workshop options from which you choose

those most relevant to your practice. A

Conference highlight is an original performance

by area youth from the Spoken Word Curators’

Program of the Cloud Foundation. The

Conference concludes with a panel discussion

with the commissioners and their

representatives from social services, youth

services, and the department of mental health.

Stephen P. Herman, MD, on the Impact of Trauma on

Children and Youth in the Delinquency and Child Welfare

Systems

Dr. Herman discusses the impact of early trauma on children’s emotional, social, and

neurological development and factors that may mitigate long-term outcomes.

Retraumatization is common in children once they are placed in the child welfare or the

juvenile justice systems, as well as among those youths living on the streets. Dr. Herman

addresses the high prevalence of mental illness in these populations and paucity of adequate

interventions along with interventions that show promise. The question as to how much

weight to give to adverse childhoods and early trauma in the formulation of legal

dispositions is addressed using the example of Lee Malvo, the juvenile sniper.
